MMPI-3 Case Description: Mr. J – Interpretive Report
PSY640 Week Four Psychological Assessment Report.
As a psychologist who was recently assigned two new clients examine psychological assessment information presented in two different formats: a computer generated interpretative report of personality test results for the patient Mr. J and a psychological report written by a licensed psychologist for the patient Ms. S and examine the personality assessment instruments used in each report?
review the MMPI-3 Case Description: Mr. J – Interpretive Report; this patient was referred to you at a community mental health center after he was discharged from at a crisis stabilization unit. Describe in one-paragraph summary of the computer generated MMPI-3 results for Mr. J based on the information in the interpretive report. In the summary should primarily present test results, not the background information on Mr. J’s case?
As a psychologist who evaluated Ms. S., examine the personality and ability testing results in the PSY640 Week Four Psychological Assessment Report. In the next meeting with Ms. S, you will be required to give her a copy of the psychological assessment report and discuss the results with her by explaining the psychological concepts effectively observing appropriate professional standards.Begin with a 1-2 sentence summary of the reason the client was referred for testing and devote the remainder of the time summarizing the test results, diagnoses and recommendations? Do not repeat history information about the client in the assessment feedback session. Be sure to report and summarize the most important information from the psychological testing in language your client can understand?
After Ms S assessment report, provide an evaluation of the contents of both psychological evaluations in terms of ethical standards and the professionalism of the interpretation of the testing and assessment data presented. Provide an analysis of the psychometric methodologies employed in the development and validation of the MMPI-3 personality test used with both clients. Develop a list of at least two additional tests of personality or emotional functioning to administer to the two clients that demonstrate acceptable validity. Justify your inclusion of each additional assessment measure in terms of the validity of the assessment measure and your clients’ presenting concerns, diagnosis, and prognosis?.
